Hello and welcome!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a cute holiday kitty card featuring the most adorable new A Kitten Christmas stamp and die sets on a simple slimline card!
The minute I saw the new gorgeous kitty designs from Newton’s Nook, I immediately felt in love with them! And so I just cannot escape to play more with these cuties! To start, I die cut all three cats using the coordinating A Kitten Christmas Die Set, Strathmore Bristol paper and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. As usual, I saved and used the negative parts of the dies to used them later inside the MISTI tool for a perfect alignment while I was stamping the open images from A Kitten Christmas stamp set with waterproof VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I colored all the elements with Tombow markers and set aside to dry.
Here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me on this project: TOMBOW MARKERS N75, 158, 452, 665, 703, 725, 899, 946, 947, 977.
The slimline card base was trimmed from Neenah Solar White paper as 8 1/2″ x 7″ piece and then scored along the narrow side so that the final card measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. I die cut the additional faux stitched frame and three squares using the same Neenah Solar White paper for a perfect match with the card base and NND Slimline Frames and Windows Die Set. Each square piece was inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink from the top edge and then embellished with a falling snow effect applied with a plain white embossing paste through Petite Snow stencil. The matching kitty themed sentiment was simply stamped in the conner of the central square with the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it gives a nice, crisp and black impression that pops agains the inked background. Finally I assembled all the elements together with a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few matching sequins.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet and cute card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
